The use of drones is becoming more common. Journalists now use them as do many people who fly them as a hobby. Bobcat Update's Quinlan Crowell tells us more.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, better known as drones, were for a long time used mainly by the military. However, smaller, lighter drones are now being mass produced and sold retail, so just about anyone can get their hands on one.
Media outlets have been using drones to cover major events, such as concerts, parades and even floods.
To safely and legally fly a drone, new pilots must pass a government-mandated course that trains them on how and where to fly.
Texas State University started offering a course this spring for students who may be interested in flying drones. For Bobcat Update, I'm Quinlan Crowell.
